rhetoric, threatening to rain death and destruction on the u.s. and south korea, kim jong un seems to have taken a day off. perhaps the north korean leader ran out of things to say. north korea had warned saturday that the korean peninsula had entered what it called a state of war and threatened to shut down a border factory complex that's the last major symbol of interkorean cooperation. in fact, the peninsula has been in a technical state of war for 60 years. for all the rhetoric including a vow to launch a nuclear strike on the u.s., experts believe a full-sized conflict is extremely unlikely. but the growing tensions during which the north has renounced an armistice and cut lines across have raised fears here that a misjudgment between the sides could lead to a clash which could easily escalate. don't forget, also, that the u.s. has just under 30,000 troops stationed here. for its part, the white house said this weekend that the u.s. is taking the new threat seriously but also noted that pyongyang does have a history of bellicose rhetoric. richard? >> ian williams, thank you so much. n

't get any weirder, it does. here's kim jong-un palling around with dennis rodman one week and threatening pre-emptive war the next. we're trying to figure out what this means. he's a young untested leader. is part of an attempted test, the strength of the new president of south korea? is it, you know, some kind of an internal power move? does he need to show that he's a tough guy to his generals who at the end of the day are the military backbone of the regime? that's part of the puzzle. but at the end of the day, it won't mean anything more than this. for the first time, china has really from the start been on board with sanctions against north korea. they helped draft this resolution which tells you just how annoyed they are at north korea. they have, to a certain extend supported it in providing it with fuel and food and this seems to be the straw that broke china's back. >> yeah, because that is pretty significant because china together with the united states, all the other members of the u.n. security council, they are on board because in the past the chinese were the

heights. kim jong un nullified the arms of 60 years of uneasy peace at that. costing new sanctions levied by the u.n. security council carrying out missile and nuclear test. as they engage in two months of joint military drills. so far no sign of hostility along the zone, but the u.s. state department cautioning the impact may yet reveal itself. >> my understanding in the briefings we have had, mutual are meant to mac imac, but what the impact on the ground is not completely, not completely evident. again, this is clearly in a category of frederick threatening behavior and it is not appropriate and is not going to be helpful in terms of taking it in a more positive direction. lori: situation in afghanistan taking a deadly turn today. the tactic took the lives of two americans. the deaths from insider attacks in the country since 2008. fox news chief correspondent has our report. >> it got even more horrific today. two american soldiers killed by a person in afghan military uniform who turned his weapon on u.s. troops. just as in a state of anti-american comments by afghan president who ac
there with kim jong un. we look for rational answers why he did "x" or "y." with karzai, he is unstable. i don't want to speculate about his psychological health but the way he acts and the way he speaks he is mercurial and largely incomprehensible. it makes no sense whatsoever to accuse the united states of collaborating with the enemy unless you want america to leaf because we saw the reaction from joe manchin to angeer the americans in to leaving which will leave him alone. without any support, without any state run and he will end up at the top of the lamp post. as happened to the soviet, the leader of afghanistan in the sew yet days after the soviets left. the only possible irrationm explanation he promised the people he would take control of the prison at bagram air base. that was supposed to happen on the visit. it apparently didn't because of a last-minute dispute over the powers of the u.s. and afghans. and i think he might have been humiliated by fact he thought he could deliver and it turned out he can't get back the sovereignty he promised his people. so that may be an explanation.
